There are many things at work in this collection that intrigue me. Firstly, the exploration of animal: fur or bastardised in prints, but fake-looking prints, stretched so they have just a passing resemblance to the original.
Secondly, hair clips on coats and hefty sized sequins on purses. The above and close-up shot show these clips neatly sewn on impeccable wool.
Mrs. Prada’s proposal: a woman can take control of her life / of men, through seduction; using charms and precious fur and shiny bits.
This is a process of seduction too: mink heels! We don’t need mink heels, but mink heels we will have.
The longer skirts with sheer blouses and ‘everyday’ bras were just beautiful – a NEW WAY for eveningwear. A new silhouette.
So, what are you going to do?
